Description

Cruise around Sicily to uncover picturesque villages, windswept mountains, and beech forests in Madonie Regional Natural Park. Check out a local farm, taste freshly made ricotta cheese, and enjoy a tasty lunch with wine in a charming restaurant tucked into Polizzi Generosa's quiet streets.

Ride with your guide from your Cefalu hotel as you dive into Sicily's interior and the pass the boundaries of Madonie Regional Natural Park. Spread out over 62 square miles (162 sq km), this expansive collection of mountains and valleys offers countless glimpses at the island's rugged hinterland. Look for forests of beech trees, keep your eyes peeled for wild boar, wildcats, and eagles, and listen as your guide shares stories about the area's ecology and climate.

Stop off to stretch your legs and fill your lungs with the cool mountain air around Piano Battaglia, a popular ski resort, and then continue on to a local farm to chat with farmers and watch them make ricotta using age-old techniques. Taste the finished product with freshly baked bread to warm up your appetite before you reach the tiny village of Polizzi Generosa.

Learn about this tiny hamlet's long history, take a leisurely stroll around town, and enjoy lunch at a beloved local restaurant. Pop a bottle of wine to pair your bites with delicious sips of the region's best varietals and linger over your final dishes before climbing back in your coach and returning to Cefalu.
